What You Should Know Before Using Teeth Whitening Strips
How Teeth Whitening Strips Work
- Risk of Uneven Whitening. It is going to be impossible for the strip to attach perfectly to every surface of the tooth. The surface area that is without the strip will not effectively whiten and can even leave yellow lines.
- Danger of Gum Problems. The chemicals used to bleach the tooth’s enamel can be harmful to the gum area. It is best to cut around the whitening strips so as to avoid any contact with the gums.
- Tooth Sensitivity and Possible Damage. Prolonged use of whitening strips can be damaging to your mouth. They cause increased tooth sensitivity that increases the risk of decay.
